Shelved after its original recording, ‘Minor Move’ was saxophonist Tina Brooks’ debut recording as a bandleader for Blue Note. It sounds revelatory today.
Blue Note’s output was so prolific that many of its greatest sessions got shelved. These lost Blue Note albums more than deserve their due.
The only album that Tina Brooks released during his lifetime, ‘True Blue’ is a reminder that the saxophonist remains one of Blue Note’s unsung heroes.
The iconic jazz label boasts no shortage of groundbreaking artists, but there are many underrated Blue Note musicians that deserve their place in the sun.
